Hopefully you’ll have all heard of our local breast cancer charity, Shine Bright, by now. Just in case you haven’t, we thought we’d share a little about them and the amazing work they do within our community!

The Shine Bright Foundation is a charity set up in memory of a remarkable young woman, Sarah Bennett. Sarah was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) and during her own treatment for breast cancer Sarah worked tirelessly to raise as much money as possible for the organisations that supported her during her own treatment.

Sarah’s aim was to set up her own charity to help raise funds to provide more research into TNBC. Unfortunately Sarah’s journey came to an end before she was able to realise her dream, so her wonderful family and friends set up the charity in her memory and so the Shine Bright Foundation was born.

The aim of the Shine Bright Foundation is to raise funds to aid research into TNBC, promote early diagnosis by raising awareness of symptoms and to provide support to those locally who are directly affected by breast cancer.

The Navitas Centre has been continuing to support the Shine Bright Foundation, not only by raising money through the Reiki shares held on behalf of Shine Bright once a month and charity events, but by providing individuals living with, or recovering from breast cancer 6 free Reiki or Reflexology treatments and also by teaching those affected by breast cancer to learn Reiki to enable them to practice Reiki self healing.

If you have been diagnosed with, or are recovering from breast cancer (within the last 12 months) and live in the Crewe or Nantwich area then you can receive 6 free Reiki or Reflexology treatments at the Navitas Centre. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at the Centre to arrange this, and please share this information with anyone you know in the area who has been diagnosed with, or is recovering from breast cancer.
